Altus Family of Servers
The Altus family of servers, including the Altus 1701 and 2701 dual-processor enterprise servers, the 1702 twin-node HPC cluster server and the 2704 quad processor enterprise server, are designed to provide management and serviceability features to support large HPC cluster deployments and mission-critical enterprise applications. They feature AMD’s six-core Opteron 2400 and 8400 series processors. The HyperTransport Assist function allows for increased memory and I/O bandwidth. The servers come in integrated clusters configured with single or twin-node Altus servers, high performance interconnect fabrics, including InfiniBand and 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and they are managed by the Scyld ClusterWare cluster management software suite.
